Future flush

Kömmerling has launched a new six-chambered flush sash profile for its 70mm platform that will achieve a U-value of 1.2W/m2K as standard and in line with the anticipated new Building Regulations for the new housing and replacements sectors.

Available in 21 different colour combinations from stock, along with a fast-track service for other finishes, the flush sash was designed with the future regulations in mind, the company said. It has also been specifically engineered for the latest TimberWeld, MechWeld and seamless welding technologies.

Glazing options are from 28mm to 40mm, and the steel reinforcement helps create a pseudo 7th chamber for enhanced energy efficiency credentials. It’s a design option capable of satisfying the requirements for a contemporary equal sightline window, or a traditional one, depending on the colour and finishing hardware chosen, the company said.

Robert Thiroff, managing director of Profine UK and the Kömmerling brand, said: “The introduction of this new flush sash has been done so after a carefully orchestrated development process that befits the Kömmerling brand. It’s packed with technical features and performance credentials, along with a wide range of finishes, and several of our manufacturing partners are already looking to invest in it with a product launch programme.

“It’s a pity we couldn’t showcase this at the FIT Show this year, but we will certainly do so next, along with other product and service initiatives.”
